vice president joe biden and governor romney have canceled events scheduled in virginia beach. >>> we have live coverage across the east coast for you. the weather channel's julie martin is live in north carolina. nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams are in delaware. we begin with nbc meteorologist dylan dryer. dylan, we had this new advisory released just about an hour ago. what's the news in it? >> the news is there haven't been too many changes. it is still a hurricane one category at this time. but we are just noticing the track budges ever so slightly with the newer updates. now instead of a direct hit right near atlantic city, new jersey, instead now it is down into delaware. look at the watches and warnings all across the eastern seaboard. obviously most out over the water but included in that northeastern south carolina, the east coast of north carolina, and eventually those will be extended up into virginia and new jersey as well. so winds are at 75 miles per hour, but notice the path of the storm still moving north-northeast at now 9 miles per hour. it sti
is in washington. joe biden will be there. live coverage starting at 3:30 p.m. eastern. the president's statement expected at 12:45 eastern. right now, a discussion on the cost of campaign 2012 from this morning's washington journal. that is the last comprehensive report we would get from the campaign, party committees, other groups. when they spend money, especially these outside organizations, they have to report every 24 hours but they have spent. the big picture is pretty well defined. host: the romney and obama campaigns are expected to raise $1 billion each. what does this say about the election? guest: is very hours but they have competitive and close. people are engaged and interested. the president's campaign in 2008 also got to about $1 billion, but altogether with the parties donations. for both of them to be there is extraordinary. host: walk us through what you're looking at in terms of money raised. there are other groups attracting wealthy. >> the campaigns are fairly different. the obama campaign has been very successful in fund- raising, raised $630 million so far. the romney cam
in youngstown, ohio, for tomorrow. president clinton and vice president biden will still be there. the president is not going to be there. he has an event tomorrow morning in florida but he's not going to ohio. he's going back to the white house. as for mitt romney, we're watching his campaign very closely. he has a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it becaus
president biden and mitt romney canceled campaign rallies in virginia beach, scheduled there this weekend. now, the obama campaign says the change was taken out of an a abundance of caution and so that police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping preepal with the storm. >>> first lady michelle obama has canceled a rally in another swing state, new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham. the campus is closing for the storm. next hour we're talking with a member of the political operation there about the four electoral votes in new hampshire and why they are so crucial. >>> forget about the campaign events alone, there are fears that the storm could prevent some people from voting altogether. edison electric institute warned customers that sandy cou ay couk power out for seven to ten days, and we're ten days out here, which could include the election day. flooding and extensive damage could keep people from making it to the polls. just look at this picture we put together showing some of the campaign layers impacted by a major storm hitting the east coast. now, as w
of the jew dishiary laughed at me -- as a matter of fact, joe biden cuss the chairman of the judiciary committee. and laughed at me. this was a controversial bill but both sides felt it was important, that we go to the senate and stand up and vote. debate something on the floor. make it as fierce and long as you need, but then do it and vote. what happened with the advent of this new president, the republicans have stated, the leader has stated -- and this is a paraphrase -- our number one priority is a defeat of this president. therefore they instituted a retirement of closure which requires 60 votes -- requirement of closure which requires 60 vote to pretrial, even on issue on the floor, certainly on a motion to close a debate. so, they defeat, whether it is an appointee, ambassador, judge, cabinet appointment or bill -- so, they defeat them on a cloweture motion without having to actually vote on the item of issue. it is terrible and they used it more than 82 times since the president has been president. >> overall the tone? >> it has been highly partisan and unnecessarily s
of fact, joe biden who was chairman of the judiciary laughed at me and said now you are going to learn about the gunners. they aren't going to let this happen. there wasn't a -- vote. there was a motion. there wasn't a live filibuster. is that controversial bill. why? because both sides felt that this was important that we go to the senate to stand up and vote and that's what we should do. to debate something on the floor, make it as fierce and as long as you need but do it and then vote. what's happened with the advent of this new president is, the republicans have stated the leader has stated our -- this is a pairs from -- pairs from. our number one priority is the defeat of this president. and they instituted a requirement of cloughture which requires 60 votes even on a motion to proceed to debate an issue on the floor. certainly on a motion to close off the debate. so they defeat whether it's an appointee, whether wts an ambassador or a judge or whether it's a judge appointment or whether it's a bill. they defeat them on a cloughture motion without having to actually vote on the it
things to watch tonight and through the weekend, first lady, michelle obama, joe biden, also big ohio presence this weekend. president clinton on the democratic side doing a lot of campaigning. and tonight in ohio near cincinnati, romney, ryan, their families, and all their major surrogates, minus chris christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wro
to joe biden. >> single and looking to mingle? find that special someone in the early voting line. if you vote early you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry, i'm being told that's not accurate. honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >> yes, we do. >> i got to say, sometimes it is hard to tell when the vice president is joking. >> i thought the same thing, as well. does he know this is comedy? okay. thanks, john, ahead this morning on "starting point," you saw some of the images that john is talking about, people desperate for gas, in the devastating aftermath of hurricane sandy. we're going to talk to rob marciano this morning on the ground updating that story and much more. jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring. [ jack ] after lauren broke up with me, i went to the citi private pass page and decided to be...not boring. that's how i met marilyn... giada... really good. yes!

affected the race for the white house. governor mitt romney and vice president joe biden each cancled planned weekend appearances in virginia. ron is traveling with mitt romney. >> reporter: all eyes on sandy, including these two presidential campaigns. over the next ten days, expect to see the president and governor romney hit these battleground states hard, including ohio, perhaps the most critical of them all. it could ultimately decide who wins this race. yesterday, governor romney held two events in the buckeye state, including a rousing rally with paul ryan last night in north canton, ohio. the campaign says about 8,000 people showed up for that event, braving some pretty brisk temperatures outside last night. now, he still has some work to do here. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50 to 46, four points. that's about half of what the lead was just a few weeks ago. governor romney has chipped into that lead, but he still has some ways to go. for the president, he just wrapped up a 5,000-plus-mile barn storming tour. he took the day off the trail, spent a lot of time doing
is to allow those exceptions. if i may -- >> mr. ryan's voting record is one -- >> chris: joe biden didn't agree with a lot of barack obama's positions but you listen to the guy in the top job. >> but mr. ryan has flipped his positions now. i guess that is news. >> chris: no, actually had it for some period of time. let's move on to libya if we can and the continuing controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed four americans. we learned friday that cia operators on the ground repeatedly requested military backup and were refused and that they also asked to be able to go from the annex where they were over to the consulate to h help out there and were refused. and this week the father of one of the navy seals charlie woods who is the father of slain former navy seal tyrone woods spoke out on it. let's take a look at what he had to say. >> my son violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people. he risked his life to be here. i wish that the leadership in the white house had that same level of moral courage and pure heroism that my son d
's changes, the storm had already altered the campaign travel calendar, if you will. vice president biden cut short a new hampshire campaign swing. and instead diverted to ohio. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is let this campaign get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> the tuesday schedule is also in jeopardy. romney canceled a stop in new hampshire. the president canceled one in colorado. this morning fema director craig fugate said preparations are in place to respond to the storm. >> we've been getting ready for the last couple days. i guess the biggest question with sandy is exactly where and how much damages are we going to see. we've got teams basically all the way from down in north carolina where it was earlier impacting the outer banks all the way to maine. we have teams in states as far inland as west virginia. we've been moving generators. we've been moving basic supplies that we would need after the storm. so it's a large response area, but we also have a lot of good teams with
't guarantee first responders will get to them. >> i know we checked with bo biden's office because he was called up in the national guard, he was a major in the national guard, be had active duty in iraq left the campaign in anticipation of this on saturday as a main surrogate, also campaigning with his dad and now he has been called up. how many have been activated in the national guard? >> 300 people so far. we may end up doubling that. we've got a terrific national guard including our attorney general who's just a great public servant here in delaware. they're doing great work. some of them are providing medical support in some of the shelters. we've opened up a number of shelters across the state. have hundreds of people in them now. but they're providing evacuation support as well. >> now, number of routes have been closed. one, of course, a main closure, route 1 between bethanie beach and dewey beach. what about exit strategies for those who have to leave? >> there are as you say, that one, we knew would be closing. actually closing it yesterday morning. and so there are evacuat
for that. he has done, as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> biden has two solo ral his tomorrow in battleground florida and trying to drum up hispanic turnout telling univision talk show host that he and the president are breaking their neck to get real immigration law. clinton was in minnesota. a state that democrats were supposed to lock upped long ago. he tried to use a superstorm to hit republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming and economical beneficial ways. he said oh, you'll turn back the seas. my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> obama camp is also suddenly spending $650,000 on tv ads in pennsylvania. democratic stronghold with 20 electoral votes. they revealed today going on the air in pennsylvania, the obama campaign sees a bluff. stephanie cutter taking a time-out from the bipartisan kumbaya over the storm to tweet romney decision to go up and p.a. proof positive they can't make the current map work to get to 270. throwing out lifelines to
place as well that we'll see vice president biden visiting on monday as well. >> so it also seemed as though the president spent a lot less time talking about romney, and spent a lot more time talking about his accomplishments including ending the war in iraq and going after osama bin laden, and spelling out his plan for the next four years. where is his next stop and is this kind of the new speech that is being unfurled here by the president to spend more time on how he sees the next four years and to remind people of what he has done in the last four? >> you know, he did talk about those things, and i also noticed, fred, that he was talking to women as well. something that we have noticed before, but he spent a considerable amount of time knocking mitt romney and his record as the governor of massachusetts, trying to frame him as someone who raised taxes or fees on the middle class while giving tax cuts to the welty. that's something that was actually new during this speech and really the one thing that really was new that we heard here today in new hampshire. president obama, th
states today, nevada, and colorado as well before heading to ohio tonight. vice president joe biden is in iowa. first lady michelle obama is in florida. meanwhile governor romney is in virginia. his running mate congressman paul ryan is making the round in colorado and nevada. his wife, ann romney is campaigning in ohio and his son tag romney is in pennsylvania. fox news has a brand-new national poll that shows the obama biden ticket tied with the romney ryan ticket at 46% among likely voters. the latest "real clear politics" national polling average also shows a tie 47.4 each. let's go to the man with his crystal ball, larry sabato director for the center of politics at the university of virginia. larry graze into that crystal ball and tell us who wins. >> yeah, the popular vote is very, very close, and the election stoerl college vote i theee electoral college vote will not be a landslide for either of the candidates. we are working on the final projection. obama is closer to 270 than governor romney, but there are a lot of these swing states, the very same ones we've been watchin
else. he was -- biden actually said we weren't aware of the earlier request for security enhancement. in any administration i worked for it would be all hands on deck if you were fk told that american facility. >> all hands on deck. let's focus on 5:00 p.m. on september 11th. the president is meeting with the vice president and the secretary of defense leon panetta. what would that does it end or does the president need to make a decision at some point about whether to commit or not commit. stew let these folks live or die. >> he has to give a signal to do whatever he can to protect them. i'm not going to guess small tactical decisions where we don't know what the facts were. if the president is saying i don't want to intervene or we have to get libyans explanations which there are other explanations that have been out there, that was a signal that was subordinates not to go in. >> we were reporting that we learned one drone overhead providing high definition video. now we know there were two drones. they had a live feed of what was unfolding at the white house. was it possible the w
's doing the job the president should be doing. >> reporter: vice president joe biden kept up the fight against governor romney focusing on an ad the romney campaign is airing in ohio which claims that mr. obama -- >> sold chrysler to italians who were going to build jeeps in china. >> it's an absolutely patently false assertion. >> reporter: we will see the president again today at some point to talk about the storm. overnight he called new york governor andrew cuomo, new jersey governor chris christie and new york mayor michael bloomberg. he also signed disaster declarations for new york and new jersey. as for the campaign, well it's still on hold. the president, however, remains visible. still with the race as close as it is, there's going to be a lot of catching up to do in the last few days before the election and nobody really knows how that's going to work. charlie, norah, gayle? >> one week from today we'll know. thank you bill plante. >>> governor mitt romney is shifting his schedule because of the storm. jan crawford is in cleveland covering the romney
an appearance in youngstown, ohio. president clinton and vice president biden will speak there. the president will not. mitt romney had to scrap campaign plans yesterday in the state of virginia. you can imagine this is just a distraction. neither one of the fellows wanted coming right in the last full week of campaigning. the timing couldn't have been worse. >> mitt romney take it as an opportunity to express that fema and this should be a state issue not necessarily a federal run issue that the state should have. supremacy over that. >> right. >> definitely like you said, a distraction that they, that they -- what are we talking politics? and binders? >> the president's day job. he has to go do that for a few days. >> of course going to be following the latest on hurricane sandy throughout the morning. make sure you stay with abc news, both onisha^ and online for complete coverage of the storm. >>> most of of will remember this day for the hurricane and whatever it may bring. but for these san francisco giants, they are waking up this morning as world series champions. the giants defeated t
in china. >> reporter: campaigning in ohio with former president clinton, vice president biden blasted the ad as false. >> chrysler has fellow bliged to go public and say there is no truth to this. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. >> reporter: and while mitt romney is technically not campaigning today, he's doing a storm relief event, savannah, in the state of ohio. >> all right. chuck, a lot of folks are asking us this morning, is there a possibility with these widespread power outages that could last days, if not weeks, is there a chance the election day itself could be delayed? >> reporter: it's very unlikely. look, the presidential election day is something that is set in the constitution. now, states run elections, and they can decide to postpone, if they wanted to, it's happened before. new york city, of course, postponed new york city elections on 9/11 on the day that it happened. they postponed that. now, that said what did come up yesterday during the fema calls with craig fugate and state officials was could states
on with bill clinton? right now, for instance, they were still going to have clinton and biden events in youngstown this was supposed to be the second stop. there was a virginia stop that was going to be today, but this was sort of odd last night when the president left. and you wondered, well, what's he going to say this morning at this campaign event? you know, is he really going to go off on a romnesia riff? you know, so this doesn't surprise me at all. >> hey, chuck, a lot happening this past weekend. >> yeah. >> i don't even know where to start. the one thing, though, that you and i can probably agree on here is, it's hard to pick up trends. you see an ohio newspaper poll, oh, wait, okay. >> yeah. >> mitt romney is now even with the president. boy, the president's in a lot of trouble. and an hour later, "the washington post"/abc poll, wait, romney's down four. an hour later "the des moines register" decides they're going to endorse a republican since nixon. a minnesota poll that shows romney within the margin of error in minnesota. there are no trend lines here, are there? >> wel
